Why does migraine occur?
Migraine is much more than a headache. It’s a neurological disease that sometimes lasts for hours to even days. Migraine is the sixth most debilitating disease in the world, but its cause is still misunderstood.
When a headache occurs, certain nerves in your blood vessels emit pain messages to your brain. This releases inflammatory material into the nerves and blood vessels found in your head, causing pain.
Your risk for migraine may be increased if you:
- Have a first-degree relative with the disease
- Are a woman
- Live with a high stress level
- Are a smoker
Migraine attacks are typically caused by a trigger. Common migraine triggers include stress, certain foods, skipping meals, and hormonal changes.
Kick the pain with ozone therapy
You might have tried medications and topical creams for migraine. While this may help some people, it doesn’t help everyone. Ozone therapy is a safe and natural way to treat migraine severity and occurrence.
Ozone is water-soluble and can be administered through your blood. When you come in for your treatment, a sample of blood is taken from your arm. Next, our provider Andrew Martin, MSN, FNP-C mixes the blood sample with ozone and then readministers it to your body through an IV drip.
Most patients tolerate the treatment well and describe it to be virtually painless. You might need 6-10 treatments spaced about a week apart to experience the best results. Many of our patients start to experience an improvement in migraine after 3-4 treatments.
58% of patients experienced no migraines for 3-5 months
Ozone therapy is a fairly recent treatment option but provides impressive results. In a clinically controlled study, 58% of patients who received treatment experienced no migraines for 3-5 months after.
Another trial in Italy that followed patients with severe migraine reported similar findings in which patients significantly decreased their number of headaches in the first six months.
Many treatments for migraine include medication and/or Botox injections. While these may work for some, not everyone is interested in these options and may look for a more natural treatment like ozone therapy.
Benefits of ozone therapy include:
- Improves brain function and memory
- Improves immune system
- Natural treatment
- Minimal side effects
Ozone therapy is a safe treatment and can alleviate migraine when administered by a skilled practitioner like Andrew. Don’t let migraine keep you from living life to the fullest — find relief with ozone therapy today.
